Abstract

Results: From among 185 studied patients, 36.7% were women and 63.2% were men. CPR success rate was 17.2%. CPR success rates in men and younger patients were more prevalent. Among the diseases, patients diagnosed with cerebrovascular accident were reported to have     the most success rates in   resuscitation.

Conclusion: Although this study and other similar studies have reported higher success rates for resuscitation in men, in younger ages, and patients with a primary diagnosis of cerebrovascular accident irrespective of other factors, carrying out more precise studies is recommended, especially on the effects of intensity of problems and underlying diseases at the time of admission on the success rate of  CPR.
